Mini Thank you's

These Thank you cards measure 3 1/2 " long and 2 1/4 " high. In the first picture I took I had the envelopes I made from K&co. paper in front of them, I used Kreate-a-lope to make the envelopes. I have been using all their templates ever since I started making cards.

With my Birthday gift card from my daughter I bought the Floral petals punch from McGill to make these roses, these were my first attempt, and I still need practice, I am going to do a you tube search and see if I can get some hints on how to make the centers look better, in these I added flower soft but I don't really like the look of that.

On the card above I used K&co. paper, a fiskar border punch and for the flower I used DCWV paper. The sentiment is a Basic Grey Rubon.  This was my first flower and after I had it together realized I forgot a whole layer, you can tell on my second card it is a little fuller.
I ran out of the paper I was using so the center is out of some scrap cardstock and flower soft. A different Fiskar punch was used for this one, I like the embossed/punched combo of these punches. Basic Grey paper and Rubon.
I have been having problems with my glue dots not holding things onto my cards lately, I don't know if they are too heavy or if it is possible for them to go bad and lose their stickiness, I am using Glue Dots brand, has anyone else had this problem?
Well today is our last warm day, for the next week we will be back in the 40's for our high's, it is so sad but I am thankful for the beautiful warm days we have had to enjoy!

Thank you so much for stopping by,
